    This is now my last entry into this blog for a while, I have read a thousand books on how normal men become madmen, live a life that is enriched only by the self, without the need for either social acceptance or social validation. I have lived my life like the characters in the books I read, I am not quite sure what I achieved by it, but I did it, I lived it, however, I never read a book on how a madman becomes a normal man, more is the pity.

    Herman Hesse once wrote,

    The man of power is ruined by power, the man of money by money, the submissive man by subservience, the pleasure seeker by pleasure

    maybe he should have added that madness also ruins the madman, that clowning ruins the clown,

    I am looking forward to moderating for a while, a world where sarcasm does not really belong, so, unfortunately personality number 43765 will have to cease for a while.

    Here's to growth for all of us, and the forum

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
